@BrightonPi are teaming up with the makers at @buildbrighton to host Brighton's first ever Raspberry Pi Jam,
This event kicks off a regular monthly meet up where Raspberry Pi enthusiasts can come together to discuss the latest Pi happenings, and get involved in local projects.
Hosted at Build Brighton's spectacular HackSpace just off Lewes Road, we will start off with two mini talks to introduce the Raspberry Pi
Session 1 - Neil Ford - Intro to Pi And Arduino -
Neil will give a introduction to both Pi and Arduino, touching on OS installation, potential uses for the two systems, and when to choose one over the other.
Session 2 - Pete Hobson - Something from Scratch.
Pete will give an introduction to the scratch programming language. Scratch is one of the Languages the Raspberry Pi foundation is proposing to include on the default Educational SD card, and is seen by many as an ideal platform to encourage kids to begin programming on. We will try to make something cool and get an idea of the capabilities of the language.
When & Where
Build Brighton Makerspace
Build Brighton is a communal workshop and collective of over 100 makers who love to build stuff.
We’re part of a global network of makerspaces – places where people do creative projects, such as electronics, 3D printing, crafts and woodworking. Our main purpose is to provide tools and a space in which our members can gather, collaborate and learn from each other. People beaver away on their own projects, or take part in exciting group projects in a playful and friendly environment.
We are a not-for-profit community run entirely by volunteers. Our members pay a monthly subscription that goes towards paying for the workshop space and equipment for the group.
